My sister-in-law and her husband is going to Shanghai next year..and I was wondering if there was any smart buys (clothes, accessories, cosmetics..) ..that are cheaper in China, that I could ask them to bring back.
I know Shiseido for instance is supposed to be a lot cheaper in Japan...but I have no idea what the bargains are in China..any ideas ?

I was just in Shanghai, and they have a variety of high end shops.

The largest concentration is at the Nanjing Xi Rd. with the Plaza 66, and Citic Square shopping malls.

From Chanel to Versace to Hermes. There is also a Sogo with Westwood, Gaultier, etc. further on.

In the Xintiandi bar area is I.T. and the Bund has Three, and 18 which is Armani, and Cartier respectively. Three on the Bund has this shop selling Yohji, Demeulemeester too.

I didn't purchase any of the labels since the selection is the same as in the U.S. and the prices are much higher due to import duties.

However I did purchase some local items.

Oddly they have this very large outlet mall across the aeroport with banners for Versace, and Dunhill, et al.

Oh, they had some Mandarin collared jackets in various fabrics such as cashmere, velvets, etc. that were quite well-cut.Although they were not in the most accessible pricepoints that one might expect in China.

Also items that were influenced in parts of Dior Homme perhaps. Actually not terrible quality.

I lived in shanghai for a couple months. left last week...

Incroyable pretty much covered everything.

the major shopping areas in shanghai are
nanjing dong rd, huai hai rd
xiang yang market (fake everything... bags, dvds, mont blanc pens, custo t shirts, timberland and puma shoes etc. etc.. )
nanjing xi rd (upscale designer stores, chanel hermes gucci prada..)
xintiandi's IT and waitan's 3 on the bund (best selection of clothes in shanghai IMO)

but i wouldnt recommend shopping at nanjing xi rd because things are so much more expensive in shanghai than in the states...
(ie. mj multipocket-> approx. 1200USD in shanghai, when it costs 900USD in states, on sale during thanksgiving for 600USD)

not much local stuff to buy either. you can get some "chinese" clothes from shanghai tang, but they are pretty expensive.. usually people go to china and stock up on fake dvds ($1 each)
